The latest from HYT is a result of three years of development and many man hours. The H5 will be making its presence felt at the Watch Time New York Show. HYT H5 has the latest hand wound 501 caliber and the whole mechanism harnesses the potentially paradoxical power of mechanical and fluid technology. The hand-winding mechanism sets a consistent pace and releases precisely the right amount of energy for two contrasting immiscible liquids to flow inside the capillary tube to represent the recent past and the near future. Visible through the sapphire case back, an intricately shaped cam offers thirteen different possibilities to adjust and index the hour and minute indications, ensuring they operate as one. an over-sized, curved lever connects the movement’s collaborating elements. This orchestrates a complex chain reaction, whereby the caliber pushes against a regulating bellow with walls four times thinner than a human hair to launch time’s next twelve-hour journey.
The domed sapphire glass is ingeniously curved around a bold stainless steel case to simultaneously present and protect. stratified metal components, stepping and sinuous lines support the design’s strong storyline. The innovative neoralite external flange, with its cut-out numerals further enhance the H5’s fascination with perspective. The striking vertical digits appear to float around the watch during the day and start to glow as darkness falls. Created from one single piece of luminescent,super-luminova®-filled,translucent material, this component’s complex production process involves 3d printing, molding, injection and subtle grinding. like natural erosion, personal evolution continues around the clock, time after time. Both variants come with a 65 hour power reserve and are water resistant upto 50 meters.
The H5 by HYT comes in two limited editions, each of 25 pieces each. Both variants are priced at $55,000 each.
